Testimonials

– Kind words from our wedding couples –

 

Nathan and I got married at the beautiful Poundon House in Oxfordshire. The family run Country House is set in private grounds boasting amazing views of the Oxfordshire countryside. There were so many reasons why we chose Poundon House  it is a stunning property, expertly run by a lovely family. Despite its grand nature it always felt intimate and welcoming, like you were staying in a family home and Esmond and his family were amazingly accommodating. It was the first venue we looked at and fell in love with its charm and history.  The venue definitely gave us the stunning backdrop and ‘wow’ factor we wanted and provided the perfect “English Country” backdrop to our colourful fusion wedding.

Thanks for all your help in the build up and on the day of our wedding. We had such an amazing day, it couldn’t have gone better! It’s such a special venue! Thank you once again!

Esmond, Natalie and Alexa you all made our special day run so smoothly, from the moment we stepped into your beautiful home we couldn’t think about getting married anywhere else!  Thank you for everything you did leading up to the day and putting up with our endless questions!  You’re an amazing family we are both so glad to have  started our Married life in your home.

Mita and Nathan

Thank you so much for everything – the support from Poundon House was amazing and incredible thank you so much.

Lauren and Dolapo

Thank you so much for the opportunity to have our wedding at your beautiful home.  We really appreciated all your help through the preparations and on the day.  It was a wonderful weekend and we loved every moment.  All our guests had great memories of Poundon too.  Thanks again, lots of love Jess and Karim

Jessica and Karim

We just wanted to extend our thanks to you for all your efforts in bringing it all together . The weather held up for us and was great whilst guests were up at the Terrace Marquee – guests mingling around the grounds etc & we only had a tiny bit of rain. The reception marquee looked stunning – what with the lighting from the guys at Noorani and tables etc.

Everyone commented on how great the venue was – from the beauty and character of the house, grounds and main marquee.

We wanted to say a huge thank you for helping us have a truly amazing Wedding Day!

Poundon House is absolutely beautiful and all our guests had a great time enjoying the wonderful grounds and views.

Breakfast and the rooms were also fab!

Anoushka and Phil

Now we are back from honeymoon and all the cake’s been eaten we wanted to thank you for all your help with our wedding.  When we decided on a small relaxed wedding in a lovely setting we thought we would struggle to find a venue to suit.

Poundon House proved to be the perfect venue. We loved the Yellow Room for the ceremony and even more important to us was that all twenty two of us could sit down to our wedding dinner at one long table.  We were lucky with the weather and were able to make good use of the grounds for our photographs and the Drawing Room was perfect for our after dinner games.

The guests who stayed loved their rooms. We think we all felt like it was our house for the day and night!  Thank you to you and the family for making it all possible.

Rosemary and Paul

This is just a short (and belated) note to say thank you so much for all your help and support for our wedding last month. We really did have the most wonderful day of our lives and getting married at Poundon House was instrumental in this. We really did love the house, terrace marquee ceremony and then celebrating in the reception marquee. It really was perfect and thank you for sharing Poundon with us.

Katy and Sam

Paul and I had been together for ten years before we got engaged so when it came to planning our dream wedding we had a pretty good idea of what we wanted, a relaxed day full of personal touches that embodied us, our friends and family. We chose Poundon House as the house and grounds were stunning and importantly the owners allowed us to be completely flexible in planning our day.

Sarah and Paul

We will never forget all your help in making our wedding so unbelievably special and will carry fond memories of Poundon for the rest of our lives. Thank-you once again!

Ranjit and Mark

We just wanted to say thank-you so much for helping us to have such a perfect wedding! The whole day was more amazing than we could ever have hoped for so thank-you for all your help and support. The day ran so smoothly and everyone commented on what a beautiful venue it was!

Sophie and Matthew

Just a quick note to say a big thank you to you, and Esmond and Alexa for all the help and hard work you all put into making our wedding day so special. We had such a fabulous day and the setting of Poundon was just perfect. So many people commented on what a beautiful and special place it was. And the sun shone!

Thank you for being so flexible with all the things we asked and helping out and advising where necessary. It really meant that we didn’t need to worry about anything and could just enjoy the run up to the day and the day itself and that was such a positive thing.

Sarah and Richard

Thank you to all the family for allowing us to use your family home as ours for the weekend of our wedding.  Your Beautiful home was the perfect setting for a perfect day.  You were all so warm and welcoming to us and we have such wonderful memories.

Bryony and Ryan

We are extremely grateful to all at Poundon House who contributed to making sure our wedding day was exactly what we wanted. We chose Poundon not only because of the stunning buildings and scenery but because we were impressed with their flexible approach in planning our day; unlike other venues where you are required to take a set package. We were given lots of recommendations and suggestions for the caterers, photographers and how the day might run but remained free to choose everything our way. We were very grateful for the expertise of those at Poundon who have experience in organising such an event. As a result of the careful planning and attention to detail by everyone at Poundon House, our day was perfect! Everyone (bride and groom included) had a very relaxed day and literally everything went according to plan; perhaps a first in the history of weddings?! We were also exceedingly grateful to all at Poundon for allowing the children at the wedding space to play, accommodating their food needs and fielding a barrage of ‘whys’ from a particularly inquisitive 5 year old.

The perfection of our day continued in the accommodation provided by Poundon House and through to breakfast the next day.

All in all, we would not change a thing!

Mikaela and Craig

We had such a lovely day and I don’t think I would have changed a thing, as the day went so smoothly and everyone had such a good time! All our guests commented on what a beautiful venue we had chosen and even my Indian relatives said it was the most beautiful Indian wedding they’d seen (including the ones in India).

I just wanted to thank you both personally for all your help and expertise – we definitely couldn’t have organised it so well without you.

Sangeetha and Ben

Just to say thank you very much for helping to make our day so special. We had an amazing time & thankfully all worked out in the end! It was so good to feel un-rushed by being at the venue the day before & having time to clear away the day after. Now back to reality, as we aren’t going away until November – busy at work & needed a little ‘normalisation’ too. Thanks again for everything

Karen and Sunil

Thank you all so much for all your help with our wedding last Sunday. We had an amazing day and everything ran so smoothly which is a testament to your planning and organisation.

The house and gardens were the perfect setting for our wedding and it was exactly the wedding we had wished for. The venue is relaxed and informal whilst being stylish and elegant, which is a difficult combination to achieve. All of our guests fell in love with the house and gardens and the backdrop for the photographs is stunning.

It was wonderful to stay overnight both before and after the wedding as it gave us the time and space to relax and enjoy the weekend. We send special thanks to Alexa for your lovely hospitality and our very tasty breakfasts and especially for providing the salmon and gluten free bread. It was very kind of you.

We could not imagine there is a more perfect venue than Poundon House and we wish you lots of luck for your continued success. Lets hope we can celebrate with you again sometime in the future.

Tanya and Simon

Thank you and your family for helping us provide a fantastic wedding for Lizzy and Dom. It was truly the best day of their lives. We would like to wish you all the best for the future.

Frances and Nigel

Our wedding day at Poundon was ‘PERFECT’. Everyone and everything was better than one could imagine. Even the sun shone all day! Fantastic, fabulous and faultless.

Amanda and Chris

Poundon House is truly beautiful – the perfect setting for the perfect wedding.  
There was not one thing that we would have wanted to be any different.  
The house is perfect for an intimate civil service and we loved the way you helped us seat all of our special little guests on rugs at the front.  
The terrace was a great place for guests to mingle and enjoy canapés before the service and the setting has meant some truly wonderful pictures.  
The big WOW for us was the marquee as we had not seen this until a few weeks before our wedding.
  The attention to detail here made it very special and our guests really loved this.
  We can really recommend Poundon House to any couple that wish to have a perfect setting and a perfect wedding day.

Louise and Philip

Everyone kept commenting on how beautiful the house and lands are. We have definitely chosen the best place to get married.
It was certainly ideal for us – everything went so perfectly! We were really lucky to find you.
Poundon House has made our wedding a fabulous experience which Lawrence and I will never forget as it has been the best day of our life.

Magalie and Laurence

Thank you again. We are so pleased that Poundon house was open for our day, all our guests thought the day was amazing and commented on how different and unique it was compared to a church wedding.
  The day went without a hitch and it was a day to remember and even the weather held out!!  
You have the most beautiful home and we will be forever grateful for being able to spend our special day there.

Tracey and Mark

A big thank you to you and your family for making our special day so perfect.  
Everyone was very impressed with the setting and the marquee looked fantastic.

Lindsay and Richard

A huge thank you for making our day so special. The service that we received from your family was outstanding and the day went very smoothly (except for the rain!) It felt incredibly special to celebrate our day in your beautiful grounds and you all helped to make us feel very special. A big thank you to the ladies who cooked and served us breakfast and for the house keeping who made up the beautiful rooms. It was simple magical and I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day.

Chloe and Jack

Myself and Rob just wanted to say a massive thank you to you, Esmond and everyone else at Poundon House for a fantastic wedding day. We had the most perfect day and everyone was so helpful. It really is the most beautiful venue and the grounds are just breathtaking. Our guests were just amazed by how beautiful it is.
